Disneyland 2020 News & Updates

You’re still in the right place for 2019 planning, but so much is coming out earlier than ever about 2020. I want to make sure you’re in the know. 

Disneyland 2020 packages open August 7, 2019. Lock in low prices with as little as $175 down with my ticket partner.

Sometimes things are announced early enough that I can make note of them here before my Disneyland 2020 guide is available. I’ll continue to add to this list:

Disneyland 2019 Planning Calendar

When is the best time to go to Disneyland 2019? For lower crowd levels, choose a weekday during the school year. You can also check Disneyland’s calendar and look out for “value” days which indicate Disney’s desire for better crowd distribution. Typically, these days offer lower level crowds but also have less Annual Passholder restrictions which could increase attendance. If you’d like to experience Disneyland with as many rides and entertainment options running as possible, visit during the summer. Summer brings extended park hours so you can experience more magic throughout the day and night.

When is it busy at Disneyland 2019? I created the calendar below to help you anticipate events and offerings at Disneyland Resort. What’s “busy” to one person may not be “busy” to another. The same goes for people who are new to Disneyland and those who visit on a monthly or weekly basis. Study our many line hacks to help you map out your best day ever:

About our Disneyland 2019 Calendar. This is not a Disneyland crowd calendar in a traditional sense. I loathe online crowd calendars because they’re often made once and never updated for new announcements, SoCal ticket specials and other events. And it is never a “ghost town” at Disneyland. Disneyland is a major tourist and local destination. Our Disneyland calendar notes major holidays, school breaks and Disneyland Resort events and is updated monthly. Be sure to check back as your date gets closer. The colors denote the following:

  • Pink- high to max capacity
  • Yellow- medium to high capacity
  • Green- medium capacity

I don’t list a “low capacity” day because I feel it’s better to be prepared for crowds and be pleasantly surprised than the opposite. Hang in there, you can do this!

Disneyland 2019 Prices

Star Wars ticket

Disneyland ticket prices went up on January 6, 2019 which is a whole month earlier than we expected an increase. For a limited time you can get Disneyland 2019 tickets at 2018 prices. Lock in your discount Disneyland ticket prices now. Get multi-day tickets for as low as $63 per day (price accurate at time of publishing, based on 5-day Disneyland Resort 1-park per day adult ticket).

Can I get one day discount Disneyland tickets? One day tickets will cost you the most money per day because only Disneyland itself sells one day tickets. If you’re looking for a discount one day ticket to Disneyland, you will need to visit during weekdays typically during the school calendar year. Because of demand-based pricing, you could pay anywhere from $104 to $204 for just one day! Compare that to buying a two day ticket from Get Away Today at $208 and you could pay only a few bucks more to spend 2 days at Disneyland Resort instead of 1 day. 

Save Even More with Multi-Day Tickets! The more days you visit Disneyland Resort, the less you pay per day. Multi-day tickets have no blackout dates, so you can travel anytime in 2019. If you’re doing Disneyland on a budget, do not buy your tickets from Disney. You’ll be paying top dollar with no discounts! Instead, buy your discount Disneyland tickets from Get Away Today (the first company to ever work direct with Disneyland to sell authorized tickets!).

Disneyland Layaway Option. Did you know you can lock in low rates on Disneyland tickets or hotel & ticket packages? In addition to the already low rates, you’ll still get perks like free night specials, free breakfast, no resort fees and free parking when you choose the layaway option from Get Away Today!

Here’s how it works:

  1. Search for your perfect ticket only or hotel and Disneyland ticket package.
  2. A small down-payment (includes non-refundable layaway fee) secures your low cost Disneyland vacation.
  3. Make payments prior to your vacation and it’s all good toward your dream Disneyland trip!
  4. Pay off your vacation two weeks prior to travel.
  5. Enjoy your stress-free, paid off Disneyland vacation!

    Hi Jessica,
    I am planning for a family trip November 17-18. Plans are to attend Mickeys Very Merry Christmas Sunday and Monday Magic Kingdom. This will be my daughters 2nd birthday (11/16) and first visit. She LOVES Minnie and Daisy. Any tips and/or tricks for visiting with a toddler? My biggest want is to ensure she can interact with her favorite characters. Also trying to figure out if a dining plan is worth the cost at this age.

    • Hey Jessica, I don’t cover Walt Disney World only Disneyland. Since it sounds like you’re prepping for a visit to Florida, I suggest you check out WDW Prep School for all things Walt Disney World. Have a wonderful time on your vacation.

    Any idea if Mickey and Minnie will still be appearing in their birthday celebration outfits Sunday-Tuesday, June 9th-12th. See that several of the Get Your Ears on Events are ending the 6th and we arrive a few days after. My mom made a custom matching dress for my daughter so hoping we can still catch them in their birthday attire.

    • They have both already returned to their regular outfits as of June 1st I saw them in Town Square. I still think the custom outfit will be so amazing to wear and take pictures with the characters. They always get a big kick out of things like that.

    Hi Jessica we when on 2014.
    Since there we had 2 granddaughters 6 months and 2 1/2 years old.
    that why we planned a trip for this year, we have 4 days, April 29 to May 02 2019
    We try to understand the Maxpass system and the switch ride.
    Our group is 5 adults and 2 babies .
    Now a have another worry, the Disneyland After Dark. Because we might leave the park early?
    Thank you, because we learn a lot from you.

    • Right now we still expect the castle to be under refurbishment in May. I’ll be updating this article with any news for May especially as we get closer to the end of March, be sure to check back then.

  • Leslie

    If sleeping Beauty’s castle will be closed for walkthroughs, does this mean no Princesses?!?! ? Our first trip to Disneyland is Jan 22-24, my 3 & 4 year girls will be crushed!
